    Default Best way to ship wheels from US to here.

    Any of you guys bought wheels from the US(privately) and have them shipped here? If so, who did you use? Maybe better to ship to the border and go for a drive?

    Normally I'd always say "ship them to a Vegas Hotel. Go to Vegas. Drink. Come home with wheels."

    This is far less helpful due to Teh Corvids.

    Tough with cargo that you can't fit in your suitcase too.

    Ship em to the border and use DYK Post to bring them up. Drive down is preferred but you can't cross right now so DYk, even with their fees, is probably best bet.

    I've used Fedex to ship wheels inside the US. It was cheaper than UPS.

    In all honesty, I would strongly recommend having it delivered to a place called "ath the border storage" in sweetgrass Montana. I had motorcycle wheel delivery there, and picked it up. I dont know if they would have a service to bring it to the other side of the border for you, but it's worth a shot. It saved me $500 in shipping costs to do it that way.

    I used DYK Post 1-2 months ago for a package, very sloooooooooooooooow service, not sure if it's Covid byproduct but it took I think about 3 weeks to receive it here in Calgary after it was delivered to their warehouse in Montana.

    I haven't bought wheels from the States for a long time, but I did several sets back when our dollar was at par and TireRack had some clearance sales. Man those were the days. I was there every other weekend - I'd grab my stuff, then go golf in Shelby (decent little public course actually), grab some exotic snacks from the Albertsons (maybe some booze) and head on back. 50/50 if they even bothered to call me in. Became good buddies with Bort (yes, BORT) at the declaration desk... I wonder if he's still there? lol

    Easy way is to ship them to Montana Ship Co or At The Boarder Storage as others have said. (you'll have to register/make an account with them first). Then either drive down and grab them (not really possible with Covid), or get them to forward it or 3rd party pickup from a friend or someone like DYK.

    I had a set of wheels and tires shipped the Montana Shipping outlet a couple of years ago, easy and cheap one for the douche bags at border made me pay GST on the tires.
